lol, Thank you!!! I already wasted much time on other crappy designs

Then why do you still have this posted?

There are a lot of unprintable designs on Thingiverse - for many reasons.
Archive, inspiration, education, a cautionary tale for other designers. Those are MY reasons.

OK, all you fidget spinner fanboyz:

This bearing that I designed FOUR YEARS AGO was junk then, and it's junk now. Just buy real bearings.
Here's a guy on eBay selling TEN for $2.70 - WITH FREE SHIPPING.
That's $0.27 each. Even if you only have a paper route income, you can afford that.
And it will be so much vastly greatly superior to trying to print THIS ABOMINATION.

it works for me but i just need the size

You could do what I did: Open the STL in an editor and measure it.
24 mm OD
5 MM ID
5 MM height

EVEN AT THIS HUMONGOUS SCALE, THIS IS A PIECE OF CRAP. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

what app do you use to make these prints because i am trying to find one but can`t

is this size a 608 ball bearing

Nope. it's just a random size. Feel free to scale as you would.
I think you're also asking what I used to generate these renders??
Tinkercad. Learn it; Love it.

But seriously, can you not read? This is a shit bearing. You're way better off buying real ones, even super cheapo ones.

Does this work for an actual fidget spinner?

See the Makes. NO.
This is junk when printed FDM. I am sorry I ever created it. Do NOT count of this working in any fashion. I should delete it.

i may print 1

keep it, it is cool
